Teaching Assistants: Laura Webster, Emma Shade and Rachael Vincent
In Literacy this term, we have been acting out the story of Beegu, which has been our text. We have been thinking about the different emotions she is feeling at different parts of the story and we’ve also made comic strips of Beegu’s story. We have been developing our use of adjectives in our writing by focusing on character descriptions of Beegu.
In History, we have been linking our learning to the history of space travel and made a timeline to show the key events that have taken place. We have also looked at the life of Neil Armstrong, who was the first man to walk on the moon!
In Art, we looked at Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘The Starry Night’. We experimented with changing the tone of the colour we were using by adding more white or black paint. We also looked at how different brush types and sizes are suitable for different jobs.
And in Maths, we have been consolidating our understanding of numbers up to 100. We have used Diennes and number squares to help us. We have also started looking at time and tried hard telling o’clock and half past times. Lastly, we have been looking at length, capacity and weight. We worked hard to solve practical problems including these.
